The best cars this week that deserve your attention

The 2014 Ferrari FF HB wasn't your typical Ferrari. "HB" stands for "Hatchback," making this a unique Ferrari that blended breathtaking performance with surprising practicality.

It catered to a discerning driver who craved the performance and prestige of a Ferrari but also appreciated practicality and everyday usability

A 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI beckons, a rare and enigmatic machine from a bygone era. The Phantom VI embodies the golden age of motoring. Its timeless silhouette, with its straight lines and imposing presence, is instantly recognizable. Every curve and detail whispers elegance and heritage.

The 911 Carrera's instantly recognizable lines are even more captivating in the Targa configuration. The removable roof panel adds a touch of sophistication while retaining the sporty essence of a Porsche

4. Scam of the week

5. Cars with the most bids

Cars that have the most bids are the ones that are most popular among buyers and have the most competition for purchase. It's important to note that just because a car has many bids, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the best deal or in the best condition. It's always important to thoroughly inspect the vehicle and do research on its history before making a bid.
